Review: Sorry I Peed On You by Jeremy Greenberg

Sorry I Peed on You: (and Other Heartwarming Letters to Mommy)
Jeremy Greenberg

Fiction / Humor

MSN's resident parenting blogger Jeremy Greenberg, who also travels the world performing stand-up comedy, combines cute, informative letters from 50 precocious toddlers with accompanying full-color photographs inside Sorry I Peed on You (and Other Heartwarming Letters to Mommy).

Wouldn't you love to know what your toddler's thinking when he refuses to stop jumping on the couch? Jeremy Greenberg's hilarious and thoughtful letters give parents a glimpse into the minds of their little ones. Finally, we can hear "first person" how a kid really isn't fooled by broccoli buried in cheese, how he'd really appreciate it if he could start going down the slide by himself, or how he'd like to apologize for peeing on you during the two seconds it took for you to reach for a fresh diaper.

From Daddy's latest four-letter vocab lessons to the dog's (not the toddler's) repeated milk dribbles on the carpet, this hilarious book answers a question every mother of a toddler wants to know: What in the world are they thinking?!




What a joy to be able to read a book like this. Being a Mom and a Grandmother I could totally visualize my kids and grand children going through some of these scenarios. All the stories were very cute and some had me busting out laughing as I envision the scene - absolutely comical.

Here is a small sample of one of the stories that had me laughing out loud.

From: Macy (and Buddy), Age: 4 years, Re: Me and my Buddy.
"Dear Mommy, …
"Why is Buddy taking a nap? I've only been chasing him for three hours. maybe he's hungry." So then I ask you for a snack but throw it on the floor for Buddy. But I think Buddy's still tired. Can you make him a cup of coffee? I gave him a sip of yours while you were in the bathroom, but he just stuck his tongue in it once, sneezed, and went back to sleep - but I think thats because he didn't want to drink your germs.
